Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada's Committee on National Health, Medical Assistance and Health Insurance, MP from the ruling Servant of the People Party Mykhailo Radutsky predicts COVID-19 vaccination will take place once a year.

"We used to the fact that we need to be vaccinated against influenza once a year, and my forecast is that we will have to be vaccinated against COVID once a year. This is another reason for the global struggle for the market," he told the RBC Ukraine news agency in an interview.

"Moreover, the virus has been mutating. It is good that it has been proven that the AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Sinovac vaccines are effective against the UK variant," he said.
